This chapter provides an ethnographic study of language politics and media produced in and for the Republic of Buryatia and other Buryat territories. It focuses on minority-language media in order to trace the circulation and uptake of ideas not just in Buryat but about being Buryat. From herders in the 1920s to lexicographers in the 2000s, this chapter examines the heterogenous ways people have envisioned Buryat through language and media. It shows how people producing and using media become a minority-language public. It draws on a mixed-methods approach to show how historical legacies matter in the present and confirm how the sites of linguistic action are interconnected and mutually informing.

Keywords:   Buryatia, Buryat territories, minority language, language politics, linguistic action
